 LandSouth Construction, a Jacksonville, Fla.-based general contractor specializing in multifamily developments and senior housing, has announced Commercial Concrete Systems (CCS) of Naples, Fla. as “Subcontractor of the Quarter.”

Commercial Concrete Systems is working on American House in Bonita Springs, Fla., a three phase senior living campus including independent and assisted living with full kitchens as well as a fifty unit memory care building.
The project consists of 60 one bedroom, 25 studio, and five two bedroom units in Phase 1, and 40 one bedroom memory care residences in the second phase.

“They take tremendous pride in their work with a reputation of impeccable craftsmanship and a cutting edge leader in structural concrete construction. There has been great communication, and a keen sense of timeliness for each project we partner with them on,” said Joe Passkiewicz, vice president of operations for LandSouth Construction, which is currently working on several multifamily projects throughout the Southeast.

CCS specializes in structural concrete & masonry construction; tilt wall projects and high tolerance floors requiring laser screeded slabs. Project types include multifamily apartments, condominiums, senior living centers, single family tract developments, estate homes and commercial projects in general.

“LandSouth Construction has been a great partner,” said Peter E. Shoup, CCS president and chief executive officer. “We share a philosophy on enhanced performance through proven procedures, tested systems and the very latest technology.”

Shoup joined Commercial Concrete Systems in 2000, and became co-owner and president in 2004. Since his leadership role, the company has grown from 20 million in sales to the approximately 80 million in annual sales that it produces today.

Their equipment includes three state of the art laser screeds. Laser screeds are used to produce “super flat floors” when the project requires a large slab on grade with high tolerance requirements for flatness.

CCS covers the Southeastern United States and are listed in the top 15 specialty subcontractors for this region. They perform bonded and non-bonded work and their bonding capacity is currently $50 million.

The super flat division received the 2007 National Tilt Up Achievement Award from The Tilt Up Concrete Association in recognition of a project that involved a five story office building in Tampa, Fla. It was a highly complex building that involved stacking a two story panel on top of a three story. The project was completed under budget and one month ahead of schedule.

LandSouth settles lunch accounts in local schools

Apr 4, 2014

Candice Aery, a project administrator with LandSouth Construction in Jacksonville Beach, had a hard time believing what her research uncovered.

She read headlines about students having their lunches taken away and thrown in the trash because they couldn’t afford to pay.

But she was shocked to learn that the same thing was happening here.

The national media reported on a situation in a Salt Lake City elementary school, at which the lunch food trays of 40 students were taken away and thrown out because there was no money in the students’ lunch accounts. The trays were thrown away in front of the students, who were given a piece of fruit and milk instead. After thousands fumed online, the school district apologized and promised changes.

In Duval County, if students can’t afford to pay for their lunch, they’re given a cheese sandwich and juice. That can continue for as long as the student’s bill is outstanding. “It’s not gourmet by any means,” Aery said. But for Aery that isn’t the worst part. “From what I’ve read online, many [children] are too embarrassed to get that cheese sandwich and would rather go hungry,” she said.

It wasn’t something she could ignore. After reaching out to Duval County school officials, LandSouth settled the debts for students in two Duval County schools. At Dinsmore Elementary, 80 students were in arrears, owing a total of $85. At San Mateo, she wasn’t told the number of students who owed money, but the debt was $106.90. LandSouth also set up an emergency fund to make sure students at both schools aren’t in jeopardy of getting an alternative lunch anytime soon.
